It's like crack, only with yarn.

I'm a symmetry freak so I did ssk on one side and k2tog on the other. I did do my descreases one stitch in from the edge to keep it neat, but there were people who did all their decreases as k2tog or ssk. It's kind of up to you, but I believe most people (including rtrgrrl) did ssk then k2tog. To pick up the stitches for the hood you have two options. First, you can knit the body pieces as normal and then once they are seamed up take the longest circular needle you can find in the appropriate size and insert the needlein the center of the first stitch, just below the BO edge from front to back. Wrap your yarn around the needle and pull it through. Voila you've picked up one stitch. (Re-reading that makes it sound WAY more confusing than it is so I would actually recommend watching a video of it being done. There are a bunch out there, but I can't remember where right now). You can also slip the stitches to a holer and pick them up later and start knitting the hood. I'm afraid that might leave some wonkiness along the seam, though. I picked up the stitches and it added some structure and stability so I would recommend picking up the stitches, but it all comes down to what you want to do. Hope this helps!!

In progress..the back piece is done!!!  I am concerned that it is too small, but hopefully it stretches?

I really like the cropped/hoodie shrug you made.  I want to make it.  I have one question.  Do you know what weight yarn you used? (sport weight, worsted weight, bulky-weight)

Hi, Lefty,
On p. 5 of this thread, it looks like worsted wt.
Hope this helps!

Here's mine using Caron Simply Soft (the side view pic is more like what the color really is).  I really like it and have worn it several times already.  People have even complemented on it, too!  Thanks for the pattern!

I knitted it top down from page 6 of this thread.  Also, in previous posts in this thread, the approx. yardage used was 850 yds.  I think that's about how much I used.  Actually it was probably less since I did short sleeves.
